Breeders' Cup Presents Connections: From Show Jumpers To Racehorses, Hall Of Famer Knows How To Spot A Good One - Horse Racing News | Paulick Report

The path to a career as a Thoroughbred trainer can take many forms. For some, it starts with a love of racing—perhaps a parent who imparts their passion for the game onto their child from an early age. For others, it might start with a job on the backstretch, working as a hot walker or […]

21/12/2021

Authentic dressage became obsolete because it was solely a mounted military practice. The basic nature of war changed from human/equine cavalry and infantry foot soldiers to primarily mechanized troops.

This change ultimately resulted in dressage being redefined as ballet or art. Before this change, national military cavalry training manuals, most dressage based, were military secret documents.

Dressage(FR) translates roughly to the word, training and was used for war horses and soldiers.

Dressage began authentically as the European foundation of training that transformed mounted soldiers and their horses into battlefield weapons, both offensive and defensive.

The images you see below are of techniques meant to kick and otherwise intimidate, injure or kill enemy soldiers on a battlefield.

The lower right picture of the Courbette, for example, is an offensive technique meant to break a tight formation of infantry soldiers in a defensive square formation.

From the pictured "rearing" position, a line of horses would hop forward on hind legs, threatening foot soldiers with the horses' striking fore feet down on the heads of infantry. Foot soldiers ran in fear from such techniques as lines of enemy cavalry horses came closer.

The lower left picture is the Capriole. Its purpose was to defend an individual cavalry rider who was separated from his unit on the battlefield. Infantrymen would smarm such isolated cavalry horses and attack the horse and rider with bayonets, clubs and pikes. To counter such an infantry swarm, a highly trained cavalryman would do a Capriole.

The rider would cause his horse to rise up and kick out front and hind, which literally kicked the heads off the shoulders of swarming enemy foot soldiers. Cavalry horses could do a Capriole, land and turn 20 to 30 degrees and do another, then turn and do another, which created a wide berth from which the rider would escape the swarm and return to his unit.

The top picture is a collection of the haute ecole "Airs Above the Ground.”

If you examine each pictured movement and analyze it, you see that each movement makes a horse into a weapon.

The movement names are French because the French Cavalry units, like Napoleon's Imperial Guard, were the best trained in these battlefield movements.

The American Cavalry tradition follows the French Saumur Cavalry School methods with regard to dressage as a basis because the US Mounted Service School (later renamed the Cavalry School) at Fort Riley, founded in 1914, had no advanced training manuals.

Cavalry riding before then was decentralized into our regiments in the English tradition, using verbally handed down methods.

This made cavalry trooper transfers between regiments very difficult. With WW1 on the horizon, US Army Headquarters switched to a national Cavalry training standard.

We asked our ally France for their classified riding manuals, which they gladly delivered. Those French secret manuals were translated at Fort Riley by a Capt. Campbell.

The "Airs Above the Ground" were eventually dropped from Cavalry training because these techniques were for heavy cavalry in slower antiquated "set piece" battles. By 1916 mechanization caused the speed of warfare to increase. Cavalry became lighter and faster and the Airs were no match for the new repeating pistol or rifle fire.

The US Fort Riley Seat grew from three influences. First was from our English Colonial heritage, from which we incorporated British high speed military riding skills. Later, from our ally the French, we gained the precision of the Saumur French Cavalry School's refined dressage/training techniques. Lastly, what made our US Fort Riley Seat uniquely the best was the strong influence of western ranch riding that brought what I call the "go anywhere-do anything" skills to the Fort Riley Cavalry School training. It was this combination of influences that created the purely American, practically versatile Fort Riley Seat that Harry Chamberlin consolidated at the Fort Riley Cavalry School into the Horsemanship & Horsemastership manuals between WW1 and WW2. I wonder how many dressage riders know this historical basis for their discipline.

Article by Daniela Leidy! A couple of weeks ago I put my feet on a Caribbean Island, for the first time in my life. I arrived on this small gem of an island, situated not very far from the coast of Venezuela, after a fairly short and uneventful flight,. We settled into our hotel and our week at “The Requilife Horse and Human, Health and Happiness Retreat” with Christian and McKrell Baier could start. The program for the week was a great mix of Yoga at the Island Yoga studio in the morning. A couple of hours of seminars and fun activities in the afternoons ,such as trail rides, boat trips and a visit to the local donkey sanctuary Our group was small which meant that we had a great opportunity to get to know each other fairly well during the following 6 days. We did this through fun experiences, serious discussions, heartfelt conversations and lots of laughter. We were challenged both in our bodies and in our minds. It was great to have the opportunity to be challenged and given tools on how to move to the next step as an equestrian, as a business owner and as a person. I left Aruba and the Requilife retreat feeling happy, challenged, motivated, stronger, more flexible in my body, and rested. by Daniela Leidy Owner at OnTopp Stables, Catawba NC Read the full article here: http://requilife.com/requilife-healthtravel.html

The Equestrian News, we need your help! Those that Love Horses: If this were the old west, I’d sit down and share a story about how I feel like horse thieves are looting us. An ugly campaign is attacking the Coto Equestrian Preserve, and putting in doubt our dreams to have an amazing facility. This campaign is the work of a very small group of people, four with obvious agendas, masquerading their cause as “horses not houses,” pretending to be defenders of something into which Ozzie and I have poured countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears. As the operator of the Coto Equestrian Preserve, formerly Coto Equestrian Center, for more than a decade, I can tell you that this malicious campaign is hurting horses and horse lovers in Coto and working against and delaying improving our historical equestrian facility. This group has created a smear campaign. The people behind “horses not houses” are not part of the process working to preserve and improve what is precious and wonderful here; this group is actually hurting horses and horse lovers with misleading and untrue statements. They are causing people in Coto and in our horse community to believe or be concerned our facility is going away when the opposite is true. I know this because people tell me so. Equestrians, that I have run into, from up and down Southern California, say that they heard our facility is shutting down. And it breaks my heart to admit that our telephone isn’t ringing like it used to and we have record vacancies. This smear campaign has been very damaging to Ozzie and me and to Coto Equestrian Preserve, and very hurtful to all I love. When the Silver-Bronze Board asked us to be the tenant 13 years ago, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Nellie Gail Ranch was an amazing horse community, and we valued our time there, but Coto was a dream come true – a majestic blend of people, horses, space, and beauty. But we have some challenges that will be very costly to fix. We have had numerous issues with storm water and flooding from winter’s rains, which not only creates a mess and is a problem for horses, owners, and trainers, but is dangerous in an emergency. Also, it takes a lot of money for the planned improvements that will bring a 40+-year-old facility back to one of the best in the west. The horses and our horse lovers, trainers, boarders and Coto residents deserve the best. By now you’ve likely heard of Oak Grove that is trying to downzone the abandoned Merryhill School site that is zoned Community Center Commercial to 13 Low-Density Residential lots. We believe, as does the Board Directors of the Rancho Colinas Homeowners Association, who is adjacent to Coto Equestrian Preserve that low-density residential is the best use for the Merryhill site. We also believe Senior Assisted Living, supported by the majority of the “horses not houses” group, is not a good use for the rural aesthetic in the North Ranch. Yes, we lost a barn and 2 acres of land, but we preserved the 24.1 acres as an equestrian preserve forever, including 6 arenas, which includes the historic Covered Arena, and the approval of the downzoning of Oak Grove will result in Coto Equestrian Preserve receiving $1.6 Million of improvements, including the new state-of-the-art Plaza Barn, the Hunt & Saddle Lounge with additional bathrooms, as well as beautiful landscaping and entry. Of course, protecting the horses is always a top priority. The improvements also include security cameras and a secured entry, decomposed granite parking, important for horse and rider safety, and decomposed roads, both with polymer so it will look like dirt parking and roads but are also all-weather, important for emergency access and evacuation and extensive storm drain improvements to stop the flooding during heavy rains. My love of horses began when I was a 10-year-old girl. My mother would drive out on the back roads to Coto, and it felt like an adventure. Once we got here, there were beautiful trails and open space to ride and enjoy a little slice of California of old. This feeling still resides within me, to this day, with a new appreciation and strength of conviction that we must, because of the loss of stables and trails in many other areas, stop the smear campaign against our Coto Equestrian Preserve. Today, I now watch kids petting or mounting a horse for the first time, and see that incredible look of joy and awe on their faces. Silver-Bronze has made a huge gift of the Equestrian Use Preservation Easement to preserve this experience for future generations. Now we must help get Oak Grove approved so the incredible planned enhancements can be paid for. Trainers, boarders, Rancho Colinas Board of Directors and those that know the facts and the truth support the Oak Grove/Coto Equestrian Preserve vision and appreciate that the 24.1 acre Coto Equestrian Preserve will remain protected for future generations and are anxious to see Oak Grove downzoning approved as soon as possible so this nightmare and damaging smear campaign can end and the needed improvements can begin, but most are afraid to voice their support. I know this because people tell me they feel intimidated by these “mean spirited and assertive horses not houses ring leaders.” After over 2½ years of trying to get a public hearing for Oak Grove’s downzoning, which has been delayed due to the controversy and misinformation that has caused concern by many by the smear campaign of a few, it is urgent to get your help. Low-density homes on large lots with the Heritage Oak trees also preserved are a perfect aesthetic neighbor for Coto Equestrian Preserve and the North Ranch communities like Rancho Colinas and Rancho Estates.
